Information about author
Jan Tarlo (1684–1750) was a Polish nobleman, public and military figure of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, voivode of Lublin and Sandomierz, and Lieutenant General of the Crown Troops. He was repeatedly elected as a Marshal of the Tribunal of the Kingdom of Poland. Jan Tarlo was a son of Stanislaw Tarlo, a voivode of Lublin, and Teresa Dunin-Borkowska. He studied in France. He owned several cities and more than a hundred villages. In 1739, he was awarded with the Order of the White Eagle. On the dark background, there is a bust-length image of a man in a red cape lined with fur, which is put on over knightly armor, and a blue ribbon of the Order of the White Eagle. A bulky figure with a firmly set head, high forehead, thick eyebrows, curled mustache, and a massive chin has a thoughtful and restrained look. There is the inscription at the top of the portrait: "Tarlo W. Sandomirski".
